Seeking blessings from celebrity is wrong: Amitabh Bachchan

Amitabh Bachchan

Mumbai:  Megastar Amitabh Bachchan feels people should not seek blessings from a celebrity or ask them to name their newborn.

Bachchan, 72, who meets his fans outside his house Jalsa every Sunday, said over the years he has discovered many unique “modus operandi” of meeting him.

“Many seek blessings from celebrities, names for their children and on. This is disapproved. I am not worthy of blessings nor intelligent enough to give a name. Please do not put me through that ordeal! It would be horrible for a child to live through his entire life saddled with a name that was not his parents calling,” Bachchan posted on his blog.

Sharing one of the interesting anecdotes of meeting a young fan recently, the “Piku” star said people often use their children to get his autograph.

“A little fellow once came to me on a crowded occasion, and asked for my autograph, looking completely puzzled and hassled. He was having problems pronouncing ‘autograph’… Photograph, auto car, and some other contortions were with effort struggling to form out of his chubby face.

“He was precocious and honest. When I asked him his name, he promptly told me that. When I asked him what my name was he said : ‘I don’t know your name. My Father asked me to come to you, so I have come’!!. hahahaha.. cute!,” he said.
